Water station

Water resources engineering focuses on supplying water for human use, removing water when humans are finished using it and developing methods of avoiding damage from excess water (floods). Much of the work of water resource engineers involves the planning and management of constructed facilities that address these tasks. Positions for undergraduates and graduates who specialize in water resources engineering can be found in both engineering consulting firms and in government entities charged with supplying water or dealing with its hazards.
